|Hjalmar Schact also starred in several Troma films.|
Anyway, what I can't get over is that his full name was Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht.
What the hell?
The source of all human knowledge says only the obvious, that Schacht's name was meant to honor the American journalist and politician Horace Greeley. But why on earth would good Germans/Danes want to honor the American journalist and politician Horace Greeley? There are, as far as I know, very few American children named for Josef Jaffe.
Apparently, his father had spent time in the United States and admired Greeley's abolitionism. Which hardly dampens the irony.
